The History of Red Bull Thre3style
Red Bull Thre3style began as an underground experiment eight years ago in Western Canada. In 2010 the event went global for the first time, effectively changing the face of modern DJ battles by pitting ten countries’ top DJs against each other. Since then, Red Bull Thre3style has grown to what is now the world’s largest DJ competition.
